Where have I been? Life Update
I’m baaaaaccck…. In case you were wondering where I was hiding, I was taking some well-deserved family time while they were here visiting with us in Budapest.
Our first visitors were my parents and our family friend, Suzanne. And while I didn’t write any blog posts, I did post some videos up on our YouTube channel.
You can watch my parents 50th wedding anniversary at Hilda by clicking here. My mother and I spent a facinating afternoon at the Kerepesi Cemetery and you can also watch a video about our week in the Hungarian countryside in a beautiful cottage on Lake Balaton, here.
Andrew and I also posted a separate video about our day spent wine tasting in the Badacsony wine region of Hungarian. If you feel like a bit of a laugh, you can watch that video here.
The day my parents left, was the day my sister and brother-in-law arrived. Luckily for them, they arrived right on time for the Red Bull Air Race. It was incredible!
Unfortunately for them, the weather was the coolest weather we’ve had yet this summer. However, we had an awesome time. And yes, there will be video up soon on our channel about their time here with us.
Make sure to subscribe to our channel, because if I’m not posting content here, I’m likely posting it on YouTube instead.
Andrew and I also took some time to visit the doctor for our annual check up at a private medical clinic here in Budapest – First Med. Both of us are perfectly healthy – with the exception of my stupid bunions and Andrew’s current case of plantar fasciitis. We are sporting matching limps at the moment LOL
Finally, we attempted to sort out the rest of our plans for 2018. 2017 was a year full of change, travel and meeting new people but now we are beginning to settle into a more regular lifestyle.
Our apartment is nicely set up now and we have pretty much everything we need. We’re starting to become regulars at our favourite shops and restaurants. Even Lucy has made some friends (and apparently a mortal enemy with the Sheltie dog whom also lives in our building).
The Big News
The big news is that I have accepted a full-time job at a Hungarian company. In fact, I just started this past week. And while I was expecting to continue my self-employment here in Budapest, this amazing opportunity fell into my lap and I am thrilled to have found it.
Perhaps unsurprisingly for some, I am continuing to work in marketing with specific a focus on content marketing and asset management. My client list looks awesome and I can’t wait to get started! Stay tuned for more details soon…
Andrew and I are attending some really fun and interesting events over the next few weeks. We will be watching the England game on the big screen at the Marriott Hotel beside the Danube. We’re attending a friends “Pink and White” themed birthday party at her winery. Next up is the Formula One and we’ve been invited to be VIPs at the Opening Party (lucky us). Finally, we finish the month off with an invitation to a formal dinner with the Ambassador of the Moroccan Embassy.
We will definitely be blogging or vlogging about them, so make sure you subscribe here and on YouTube to stay current with our adventures.
I also post regularly on Instagram if you want a more casual view of our daily life. You can click on the feed in the main page of this blog site to see my latest posts.
Thanks for reading! I promise that more is coming soon 🙂
